The tape is
recorded by Ad Delleman. It is in a blue Philips EL 3953 DP postal box and on a
Philips spool, 8cm. It is a recording of New Year’s Eve in Genjem. Side A
starts with the sounds of sporadic fireworks, comments by Ad Delleman and the
sounds of a drum and flute orchestras, singing, cheering and shouting, more
comments and after 21’19 he talks in Bahasa with a lady who sells
ethnographica. The people are going to the church because it rains but Delleman
stays near a fire and talks to the people. Side B starts with a broadcast of
RONG Biak, a programme on Dixieland and New Orleans jazz. Languages Bahasa and Dutch.
